all pictures below were taken using a Samsung Galaxy S4

With Christmas around the corner, there is no doubt that everyone have already planned on how they will be celebrating it. But if you still haven't yet planned anything, no fret. You can always spend it at home with your loved one with a specially personal home-made meal.

Well if you're looking for something to cook this Christmas I'm afraid I can't help you, as anybody who knows me knows that I can't cook a gourmet meal to save my life. But I do have some cocktail recipes that will definitely knock her (or his) socks off, and best of all, doesn't cost you much for the ingredients nor require you to have a P.H.D in cooking.  :

I'm also giving away 2 crates of Guinness Stout beer so read on to learn how you can win yourself an extra Christmas gift this year!


Chocolate Guinness Delight (2 servings)
A really simple concoction that only requires roughly 15 minutes preparation. Perfect for those that love a chocolaty alcoholic cocktail with just a hint of Guinness

Ingredients

  • Half a cup of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 oz Van Houten semisweet chocolate (Dark)
  • 1 can of Guinness Stout

Directions

1) Heat up the sauce pan, in low heat
Low heat is a very important factor here because we don't want burnt up chocolate

2) Melt condensed milk and chocolate
Milk first then chocolate, stir gently and avoid letting the chocolate sit too long at one place to avoid burning it.

3) Remove from heat and whisk condensed milk and chocolate
Remove the mixture from the heat and onto a bowl, be careful as the chocolate can be very very hot at this point.

4) Set it aside for 10 minutes to allow mixture to cool down
You don't want to serve a boiling hot cocktail to your date and risk burning her tongue

5)Pour a can of Guinness over the chocolate mixture and stir until it's well combined
Remember to use a big glass first to mix everything in. Pour Guinness into the glass gently to avoid excessive foaming.

6) Divide equally into 2 glasses
